All the information about how the assessment of final grades this year is being carried out is on our dedicated webpage at https://www.waltonledale.lancs.sch.uk/teaching-and-learning/examinations/year-11-assessment-summer-2021.  This page will tell you all the assessments that are being used as the basis for the grades and the processes that we are required to follow by Ofqual and JCQ.   You will also find the form which is required to let us know if adjustments are needed due to individual circumstances brought upon by the pandemic. 

We have just received the information from Ofqual that they have published a student guide to the process this summer - they write

"Ofqual have now published their new student guide to awarding: summer 2021. This guide offers support for students taking GCSEs, A levels, vocational and technical qualifications this year. It is written for students and complements the materials that have already been published for teachers. It also contains important advice on where students and their families can go for more information and support, including support for those with mental health concerns."
